Brodner’s Person of the Day: General Bam

General Bam hits the beach. If he makes it he will negotiate heavy incoming left and right. In The Nation Jeremy Scahill exposes his Bushy commitment to long-term Iraq involvement as well as to Blackwatery contractors. In today’s Times we see the gathering loony right wheelhouse starting to churn. He needs to get to the right (as opposed to the Right) side of the war and the military industrial complex. (Remember them?) And stand up and tell the truth.


We believe that journalism needs to stand for something right now. That the press is the enemy of secrecy and corruption. That reporting without a sense of right and wrong only helps liars and propagandists succeed. And that we're in this fight for the long haul.

So we're hoping to raise $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall. Read our argument for journalism that is fair and accurate and stands for something—and join us with a tax-deductible monthly donation (or make a one-time gift) if you agree.
